[mythtv-users] Wierd stuff with listings (DirecTV guide)

This is a totally unverified answer, but I pulled the ppv.pl scripts from cron 
because *I think* they were causing problems. It seemed that they were 
pulling program data from longer date ranges than xmltv was, sometimes 
leaving holes in the regular channel listings (mythfilldatabase thought it 
had to start later than it really should have).

Like I said, I didn't really test this theory, just ripped out ppv.pl and 
haven't had "No Data" problems since. Might have been coincidence, but I'm OK 
with that...
